    Fear is in the air

    Amen, Sue Ellen. We have friends from different countries and they have bent over backwards trying to become "American". They are definitely in the minority! Where have we come up with this idea that we are to capitulate to every language, custom, dress, etc. that is out there? We have always been considered a 'melting pot' and that is not a bad thing. There is identity in being an "American". This hyphenated American thing is out of hand. When we go to other countries we had better learn their language and their customs in order to have a smoothe transition. If you choose to leave the US to become a French citizen, than baby learn French and say, I am a French citizen, not, I am an American-French citizen. We have become such an enabling, codependant society. Ranting done now.
